SHOOT 2nd Quarter 2020 Top Ten Music Tracks Chart

A rousing rendition of "Glory" from the Detroit Youth Choir, Yessian Music and with rap lyrics from IndigoYa takes the #1 slot in SHOOT's latest quarterly Top Ten Tracks Chart.

Also part of the Chart mix are: an inspiring pandemic message from Uber, Wieden+Kennedy and Beacon Street Studios; a Tank and the Bangas' music video with a reimagining of "What the World Needs Now";  a tongue-in-cheek "Cows Menu" clip for Burger King in which Pickle Music helps clear the air; and a fanciful "Daydream" from Stella Artois out of agency Pereira O'Dell.

So have a listen to the best music & sound this quarter has to offer.
